My job requires my hair to be up all day, erry-day. By midday my head would be hurting from the bun atop my head. I was losing hair left and right. I've literally been using these SLIP scrunchies since Christmas and they are a life-saver. First, I'm no longer finding that I've removed half my hair along with my hair-tie. Second, so comfy. Third, SO MANY COMPLIMENTS. And finally, NO MORE CREASES. Makes a great gift too! So much luxury in such a small package! Do yourself and your hairs a favor: buy these.
